Book Club - Life of Pi

I went to the Newcomer's book club tonight. I was glad that it finally got me to finish Life of Pi, which I had started and put down in the summer. I used to love literature class in high school, but I've been on a slow decline in my appreciation of higher fiction. It was good to not only finish a book outside of the Harry Potter series, but to be forced to think more deeply about some of the concepts - not too deep though and I sure don't feel like righting any papers.
Next month they're doing a nonfiction book about animal behavior (this one I think), a great follow up to The Life of Pi. After that, I think they're moving on to The Golden Notebook. I think I'll try to join in. Mary does a great job of leading the discussion; we had a good time, but I didn't feel like I was in class.
Life of Pi review: Good thinking optional book. Enjoyed it when I was just taking it for what it was on the surface, commentary on animal behavior, religion and a pretty good plot (which picks up 100 pages in). It was also easy to see more to the book once I was in the club's discussion.
Cool. Maybe I can start looking for books that aren't the next installment of Bridget Jones.

Ski Report

I skied at the Beav for the first time in a while on Sunday. There was so much powder, I didn't know what to do with it. Man it was nice though. They also donated some lift tickets to the Leukemia Society that we'll be giving away at our fundraiser at the end of the month. Thanks Marge!

It's not done either. Check out the ski report.

Running heled me to come to appreciate winter. I used to think that running in the cold would be miserable. After a winter of running in DC, I came to realize that it never was too cold to run. NPR just said that it's -6F at the airport. has it at a warmer -1F. Brrr.... I think I'll skip this AMs run.
